Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

Last night we watched Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, and man did I love it.

I saw the previews and trailers for this movie many times, but never thought it’d turn out this good.

It’s an adventure/comedy/fantasy about three wealthy children whose parents are killed in a fire. When they are sent to a distant relative Count Olaf (Jim Carrey), they find out that he is plotting to kill them and seize their fortune.

It’s based on the first three books in the “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” book series: The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, The Wide Window.

The story is very well told, the movie very well made and shot, the acting is great, it’s all just perfect.

All the actors do a really great job, but Jim Carrey does an amazing job in this one. He rocks big time as Count Olaf.
This is one of his best performances to this day. A big bravo to him.

I’ve always liked Jim Carrey and believed in him as a magnificent actor, and it’s roles like this that bring it out of him.

This movie is a must see. I highly recommend it.

My score for this movie is: 9.5/10.
